Fresh and Local Lunch

For science this year, Colette's been studying "food science".  She just finished reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.  To keep it all fresh on her tongue mind, I took her out to lunch at a local restaurant that features a fresh, local, and seasonal menu.  A chalkboard in the entry noted the local farms from whom they get their food...for produce, cheeses, pasta, and more.

Cuttings from my favorite bulbs were on the table.

The menu was quite extensive and everything sounded soooo tempting.  In the end, Colette chose a caesar salad with all natural chicken.  Vintage Vera scarf?  Gift from a dear friend who knew Colette would be just the girl to appreciate it.

And I chose the Apple Salad with: baby spinach, local apples, roasted apples, candied walnuts, cranberries, and goat cheese, served with Poached Apple Dressing.  Wow!  Delicious!

We’re definitely going back to that restaurant!
